Rushdie Snubbed on Booker Shortlist

"The six finalists for the Man Booker Prize, considered by many to be the most prestigious award for literary fiction in the English-speaking world, were announced on Tuesday in London with the traditional fanfare. But this year, as sometimes happens, the shortlist attracted more attention for who was not on it."

- Julie Bosman, the New York Times
